Home for Dinner (Part 2 of 2) – Summary:

In Part 2 of his presentation on efficiency in the urologic practice, Neil H. Baum, MD, Clinical Professor of Urology at Tulane Medical School in New Orleans, Louisiana, offers five more ideas about how urologists can be more productive. He reviews the current problems facing urologists which make them less efficient. He explains why patients should complete their forms at home before coming into the office, as well as why it is important to obtain prior authorization. He emphasizes the benefits of using scribes and discusses the best way to use them. He also highlights how telemedicine can help improve efficiency by using it to fill no-show gaps in a urologist’s schedule. Finally, Dr. Baum talks about how important improving scheduling is and explains that the best way to stay on time is to build a 15-minute buffer into the schedule that can be used to deal with any emergencies that crop up.
